GREAT FALLS -

The Lewis & Clark County Sheriff's office is searching for a woman whose kayak overturned in the Missouri River on Saturday.

Undersheriff Jason Grimmis says they received the call at around 3:15 p.m.

He says a couple was out recreating when the woman's kayak overturned a quarter-mile up from the Wolf Creek Bridge toward Holter Dam.

Her boyfriend began searching for her and then called 911.

Her boat and life-jacket have been found.

Wolf Creek Fire, Lewis & Clark search and rescue, Lewis & Clark Sheriff's Office "wet" team, and Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks are participating in the search.

Grimmis says the weather conditions will not allow people to search through the night.

He says they will continue search and rescue operations in the morning.

Authorities have not released the woman's name, nor any other details, at this point.

We will update you when we get more information.
